Burton Albion shooter Kieran O’Hara extends Scunthorpe United emergency loan


Burton Albion goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara’s emergency loan deal with Scunthorpe United has been extended, it has been confirmed.

O’Hara teamed up with Scunthorpe United earlier this month following the goalkeeper injury crisis.

The former Manchester United youngster started in League Two clashes with Mansfield Town and Leyton Orient and now the goalkeeper looks set to feature again.

As confirmed on the official Iron Club website, O’Hara’s loan agreement has been extended for seven days.

This means the 25-year-old goalkeeper will be signed up at Glanford Park to take part in Saturday’s clash with Bradford City as the club try to end their four-game winless streak. Keith Hill’s side have only kept two clean sheets all season, so he’s waiting to see if O’Hara can land number three for Scunthorpe before returning to Burton Albion.

Back at Burton …

While O’Hara is absent with Scunthorpe, parent club Burton Albion will be looking for a two-game winning streak after beating Accrington Stanley 4-0 on Tuesday night.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side will face Doncaster Rovers at Pirelli Stadium as they look to end the week with six out of six possible points.

Ben Garratt has been Burton’s number one between the sticks, appearing in all 19 League One games so far. Ellery Balcombe was the backup option for Hasselbaink, leaving O’Hara in the pecking order.
